Last year my cousin asked me to make her a runner for a table her hubby made her. When asked about style, colour etc her response was "surprise me". How scary is that. It was the first time I had been to her home so had a quick look around to try to absorb her style.
Just before Christmas I sent her pics of the finished top and she was thrilled. She said I had got her colours just right. (Phew!!!!!)
